Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s Can’t-Wait offering – Fearless by Allen Stroud – release date – 8th September

BLURB: AD 2118. Humanity has colonised the Moon, Mars, Ceres and Europa. Captain Ellisa Shann commands Khidr, a search and rescue ship with a crew of twenty-five, tasked to assist the vast commercial freighters that supply the different solar system colonies.
Shann has no legs and has taken to life in zero-g partly as a result. She is a talented tactician who has a tendency to take too much on her own shoulders. Now, while on a regular six-month patrol through the solar system, Khidr picks up a distress call from the freighter Hercules…
I am always a sucker for a fabulous spacescape – so this cover immediately caught my attention. And then the blurb. How interesting – a protagonist with a significant disability! That also caught my attention – and then the deal was clinched by the mention of the freighter Hercules. Because… SPACE SHIPS😊!
Looking forward to tucking into this one, as I am in need of a cracking space opera adventure in my life…
